Emeritus Professor of Medicine, UC San Francisco

Dr. Yelin is Emeritus Professor in the Department of Medicine and Philip R Lee Institute for Health Policy Studies at UCSF and Core Researcher at the Interdisciplinary Center for Healthy Workplaces. Dr. Yelin has been researching the interaction between work and health for four decades, showing both how
adverse working conditions affect the health of individuals and the working age population as a whole and, conversely, how persons with health problems can function in contemporary employment. Dr. Yelin has won numerous awards for his research, including election to membership in the National Academy of Social Insurance and the Distinguished Scholar Award from the American College of Rheumatology. In the Center, Dr. Yelin is focusing on how changes in the nature of work affect the health of the workforce, for example, the growth of continent work in general and so-called “gig jobs” in particular.
